An Acknowledgement to the other side of father's day and other holidays like it.
This Father’s Day absolutely broke my heart. While I was so happy to see my own dad and to spend time as a family, the fact that my husband is having a hard time even talking to his kids, let alone see them is absolutely gutting.
Keeping in mind I am not taking sides one way or the other, divorce rips families apart.
It can, and often does, dig massive holes that turn into trenches where one hides from the next blow. Wounded hearts and bitter tongues wreak havoc on the innocent ones left in the middle.
My heart breaks for my husband and for all those men and women out there who are going through the same thing. So many mothers and fathers do not have the joy of being with their kids, and kids without their parents.
Not all families are created the same. We are all made up of different parts, different pasts and different futures. One thing is for certain, we are all made of love, and love never fails.
Praying for strength, endurance, everlasting love and PEACE to everyone that is going through this time in their lives. Don’t give up, your time will come!
